An  IDF soldier was lightly injured during a raid on the Jenin refugee camp.

The IDF Spokesperson confirmed a soldier had been injured during nightly raids in the Palestinian refugee camp of Jenin, in northern Samaria. During the operation, local militants threw firebombs and shot at IDF soldiers. The injured soldier was evacuated to the Rambam Medical Center in Haifa for treatment. His family has been notified. His condition has been described as not serious.

During nightly raids, the IDF and security forces arrested a total of nine wanted men, six of whom on suspicions of involvement in grass-roots terrorism and, violent mass disturbances against civilians and security forces. In Jenin itself and the Palestinian village of al-Hashmia, the army arrested three people, suspected of being operatives in the terrorist organization Hamas. All were transferred to the relevant authorities for further questioning.
